Well then mine is either getting more than 5 extra HP or I have a more sensitive ass......lol. I have the Airaid and flashpaq. An when my ass REALLY notices it is when I tune the flashpaq back to stock. Then my ass says it's the dog that I remember.....

Yeah, as far as numbers go, the flashpaq probably doesn't give you a whole lot, but I've been really happy with mine. I run the standard 87 tune and it makes a big enough difference that getting on the freeway isn't pucker-inducing. Also, shifts and drives better overall in the mountains and up long grades, as others have mentioned. I'm playing around with the Mileage XS tune right now. It's weaker in the seat-of-the-pants sense, but if it makes a big difference in MPG, I might use it most of the time.

So if the main selling point is shift points, then does that mean that manuals won't notice any difference?

For manuals it modifies throttle response sensitivity. Not sure how well it works, but that's 1 of the features that Superchips claims for manuals. It does nothing for auto in that regard.

Found an article on the subject: https://jeepequipment.com/tuners-and...s-for-jeep-jk/
After I read it I stopped on these variants:

- DiabloSport Trinity T2 EX Performance Programmer – 9445. Looks like this tuner has Driving Coach and movable.

- Bully Dog GT Gas – 40417. This thing has many options for small price. Also it is possible to set several settings for several cars at the same time.

Which one is better in your opinion? Can this article be trusted? Money is no object.

I have the Bully Dog. It gets the job done, but I can't suggest it. Not very user friendly IMO. It's tied to the VIN, so not sure how programming several settings on several cars at the same time. Also, all that shit in that article about the Bully Dog is dumb. The "driving coach" is a pain in the ass beeping at you and all that other stuff about how you're going to get great fuel economy and lower engine temps is a joke. You're going to use this to change tire size, axle ratio, and tweak a few other settings, then you're gonna chunk it in a drawer.

I do. I was just responding to what previous posted commented on as they specifically brought up the unit I have, and which I could not recommend.

Fair enough, I think it's a good thread and I don't see any others in the last while talking about tuners so maybe it's a good one to revive.
